I have installed fontforge on Windows. I have created fonts following the tutorials provided by them. After completing designing I generated fonts in open type format. Name of my font is best. I copied the file to fonts folder of windows folder in C drive. Then I open Microsoft office and chose the font best. While typing best fonts I saw some different fonts which has been given in the picture
I did not designed it like this. The blank portion of my fonts has been filled with black color.
What is the reason?
Unusual font appeared on MS Office after creating on FontForge
Did you change the glyph of a font in any way?
In most truetype fonts, if you changed the glyph in any significant way, those instructions are no longer valid so Fontforge removes them. Changing a glyph with Fontforge will degrade its appearance. Fontforge only reads the saved instructions that were present in the original.
To make Fontforge generate truetype instructions for you, use the Hints > Autolnstr command. Also, draw the glyphs in a clockwise fashion. Some rasterizers do not care but others will have difficulties with counter-clockwise paths and may produce fuzzy stems or even nothing at all. Run Element > Correct Direction on all your glyphs before generating a font.
